THE AWNING

The system is composed of

  • THE FABRIC, that provides shade.
  • A SYSTEM, that supports the awning.
  • AN OPERATION SYSTEM, that lets you open and close the awning

THE SISTEM THAT SUPPORTS THE AWNING

The awning system consists of

  • The brackets which hold the awning to the wall and support the other elements.
  • The profiles which protect the rolling tube and traction system.
  • The arms which allow the awning to be extended. LLAZA systems are manufactured with top quality materials and are the result of significant research and development efforts by the company.

the system is made primarily out of aluminium, which is used in the frame of the awning. Aluminium provides strength, has a long lifespan and is easy to use.

THE FABRIC THAT PROVIDES SHADE

Another basic element of an awning is the fabric.

The selection of a fabric should not be based solely on its colour and pattern. It is important to know how to choose the right fabric as its different qualities in terms of material, density and the technology used to manufacture it all affect the degree of solar protection that the fabric provides.

What material should the awning fabric be made of?

  • Acrylic frabric is more effective and long-lasting.
  • Mass pigmentation provides very solid colours that hold the original tone for a very long time.
  • This material reduces the adherence of pollutants.
  • It allows air to pass through, but not water (if atmospheric conditions are not extreme).
  • It is non-toxic and non-  polluting.
  • The primary feature of PVC fabric is that it is completely waterproof, making it ideal for awn-ings exposed to wet con-ditions.
  • It is very resistant to tearing and fraying.
  • Some PVC fabrics can be treated for fire-resistance.  .
  • These are special fabrics created using cutting-edge technology and made of membranous structures which offer multiple advantages.
  • These fabrics can be made of polyester and PVC or fibreglass and PVC.
  • They are very flexible and long-lasting.
  • They provide excellent thermal insulation, which helps to save energy.
  • They reduce the level of heat in a room due to their capacity for transpiration, which lets air pass through.
  • They provide visual comfort, protecting your eyes from glare while allowing you to see through them, which helps to prevent the feeling of being closed in.
  • They come in a wide range of colours which let different amounts of sunlight through.
  • There are different fire-resistant treatments available.
  • The texture of the fabric makes them easy to clean.

THE OPERATION SYSTEM FOR OPENING AND CLOSING THE AWNING

THE THIRD ELEMENT OF AN AWNING IS ITS OPERATION SYSTEM

An awning can be operated manually with a hand crank or a motorised or automated system can be installed. Motorised systems provide more precise operation and help to make the most of the awning. We are continuously developing new and stronger awnings with systems that guarantee increased durability and which are able to cover larger areas.

SO THE OPERATION SYSTEM CAN BE

  • Traditional, with a hand crank and gearbox.
  • With a spring-driven gearbox and hand crank: the compensating spring  mechanism makes it considerably easier to extend and retract the awning.
  • Standard motors: A traditional motorised system with an inverter. The motor is activated with a button and a cable must be installed between the button and the motor.
  • Remote control: These motors have built-in radio receivers. This means that no cables need to be installed because the awning is operated using a remote control.
Adding a smart system to an awning guarantees durability and increased comfort. A wind, rain and sunlight sensor controls the opening and closing of the awning automatically when it is needed, without the need for supervision.

  • When the sun is shining: when the intensity of sunlight is above or below a programmed value, the sensor detects this and opens or closes the awning as needed.
  • When it rains:  the automatic system detects precipitation and opens or closes the awning.
  • When it is windy:  if the wind causes the awning to oscillate or move in ways that are potentially harmful, the wind sensor detects this and closes the awning to protect it.
